SOUNDEXCHANGE SUES MUSIC CHOICE

SoundExchange filed a lawsuit today against the multi-platform video and music network to recover underpaid royalties.

"Music Choice's actions reflect a persistent effort to avoid paying royalties for its use of protected sound recordings,” SoundExchange Senior Vice President and General Counsel Colin Rushing said in a statement.  “Its creative accounting has cheated creators out of the royalties they are due and is inconsistent with the Copyright Royalty Board's regulations.

"We hope this action will compel Music Choice to pay the royalties that are due to music creators and to change its practices moving forward."

The action came after an audit of Music Choice's royalty statements from 2013 through 2016.
